I saw these at Mid-Ohio about a week ago during the IMSA event. The goldish paint is not attractive in person IMO. Overall I just thought the car was kind of ho-hum and yet had some of those...

Hopefully it does not happen to the extent that I imply in my tongue in cheek post. What actually worried me a bit more is that the holes in the fender liners may allow salt and other corrosives to...

Who are they trying to kid? Aero benefits? Better engine and brake cooling? Better MPG? Pfffft! They are obviously in cahoots with manufacturers of car cleaning products, car wash operators and even...

My post was a bit tongue in cheek. No one can build a car that will survive a driver error like downshifting 3 gears instead of one. Well, that is, unless they eliminate manual transmission which...

Remember when people used to complain about the 2ZZ in the Celica GTS being fragile, bending valves and exploding oil pumps? Well, I guess things have not changed a lot. Toyota still has not figured...

There are just so many design elements of the Gen 2 BRZ/86 that I do not like. Foremost among them is the heavy sculpted section below the door and into the rear fender. Also the front and rear are...

Getting replacement parts to replace damaged items is different from a repair not being properly completed (IMO) and the car being placed on the line as a new car. A future buyer would likely end up...

I do not buy the story either but what appalls me the most is that they say this was a new car test drive and after the damage they just replaced the clutch and pressure plate and then put the car...

That is how I felt about my Datsun 280Z. The next closest is my current toy, the MR2 Spyder but it sits so low that is harder to get in and out of. Of course, I was 40 years younger when I had the Z.

I am looking forward to the onboards to see what happened at the start. It looks like you had a great drive up through the field though and a good showing for your first Run-Off appearance.

I have to agree with you. That is beautiful and much more reminiscent of the original Z car. However, it pretty much ignores the evolution of the car through the other years. The designer(s) tried to...

It is a mishmash of design elements from every generation of the Z car. That sounds like a bad idea but somehow it works. I like it from every angle except head on. The car looks too square from that...

Yeah, LOL, they are not the prettiest things around. The hard top helps a lot. Once you have driven one with a 2ZZ or 2GR, they start looking a whole lot less ugly to you. :burnrubber:
